Chris Brown is caught up in a legal battle with his daughter's mother, Nia Guzman, who is escalating their dispute. Guzman is said to be filing new court documents in efforts to get a bigger payout from Brown in child support. She recently hired a lawyer, Lisa Bloom, to help her boost the monthly payments the singer makes to help the mother raise their 4-year-old child, Royalty.

The entertainer is already paying Guzman $2,500 per month in addition to $4,000 to her own mother, who also acts as the child's nanny.

The court documents that were filed in California state that Brown earned an average of $4,269,067 over the last two years. According to the child support guidelines of the state in which they live, Nia could be entitled to receive $21 000 or more every month, since his monthly income is estimated to linger around $350,000. Guzman claims that under this logic, Brown, who currently sees his daughter during supervised visits, owes her $250,000 in retroactive child support.

Guzman claims that she is facing financial struggles while her online clothing store only earns her $400 per month. Her monthly expenses include $3,300 in rent, $3,500 in food and $4,500 in clothes and entertainment for the 4-year-old. 

Brown is supposedly planning to fight the requests.
